Oma

Dana Bloch is nearly 30 and lives at home with her parents.  A Ph. D candidate, studying genocide and film, Dana connects with the world around her through a screen. Adept in facts, she has collected hundreds of stories from holocaust survivors, the only one that escapes her is her own grandmother’s.

At 90 years old, Dana’s grandmother, Ethel Mueller is sharp, sexy and meticulously put together.  She lives in New Jersey alone in a retirement community she finds to be ‘lacking’. She has one daughter to whom she no longer speaks. Most people like Ethel, but she doesn’t always like them.

Dana and Ethel meet for the first time in 20 years on camera. As Dana attempts to get Ethel’s story, Ethel is reluctant. She agreed to this meeting to see her granddaughter, and if she’s going to rehash the past it’ll be on her terms.  What ensues is a cat and mouse game of facts and missed connection. As Dana gets closer to getting Ethel to speak, she realizes that the person in front of her is more interesting than the story she intended to get.

Oma had it's World Premiere at the Oscar®-qualifying Nashville Film Festival on April 23rd 2017.
